Cancellation of CRC Selection Round 17 - Updated 14 May 2014

Following the release of the 2014 Commonwealth Budget, the Australian Government's CRC web site advises:

As part of the 2014-15 Federal Budget, the Government has decided to reduce funding for the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program by $80 million over the forward estimates. As a result of this decision, the 17th selection round will not proceed. Applications from eligible existing CRCs seeking an extension of funding will be considered separately on merit with applications due on 3 July 2014. Existing CRCs seeking to apply for additional funding through the priority public good funding mechanism will also be considered under this process. Round 17 CRC submissions for new CRCs will not be proceeding.

Round 17 will remain open for bids for extensions of existing CRCs and CRCs funded under the Public Good provisions.


Continuation of the CRC Program in 2015 - Updated 27 May 2014

The Hon. Bob Baldwin, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Industry, addressing the annual conference of the CRC Association on 20 May 2014, advised that the CRC program will continue to be supported by the Commonwealth, although it may be substantially changed from its current form. A review of the program, to take place in the second half of 2014, will be considered by the Commonwealth as it considers what changes it will make to the program. Mr Baldwin advised that there will be a CRC submission round in 2015.
